Valdus was a good Biblical preacher. Valdus, as a faithful witness and a persecuted Christian, preached the Gospel of Christ only. Now, before you condemn him as a false preacher (or assume that), first read his French translation of the Holy Scripture.

Valdus and the Waldenses absolutely were true Christians.

The Waldenses were very holy men. Go read Reuelation 11:3.

Could the 1,260 days mean the first 1,260 years? This was primarily the Protestant school of thought.

Please read the original 1560-1599 Geneva Bible. The Geneva Bible is "America's rich heritage."

Christianity is unique and living faith.all the principle is about loving all human it doesn't matter race ,relgion,poor or rich all are one in the presence of our lord .so if we are Christian we have to abide on this princeple.I believe this is the only truth and way which shines in human heart which lives earth as well as in heaven .this is the faith the hope of all humanity which librates from all darknness.
it is about equality love peace in the presence of all human by is the engine which knowlage of understanding from our lord.

I am a christian because God created me for His glory, that I may be a vessel of honor. He called me, chose me, sought me out, and gave me sight that I may see my true nature as a wretched, God-hating sinner fit for nothing but damnation. He extended me mercy because His Son had already taken the wrath that was due to fall on me. All I had to do was believe, repent, and trust Christ. No trips to Mecca, no penance, no ritual, no ceremonies. I can't even breathe on my own, God gave me life and breath! I most certainly can't plead my case of self-righteousness based on works He gave me the ability to do.I am a Christian because I would have to be literally insane to reject such a priceless gift. I may be many things but I'm not insane.
---Kai on 11/20/08

I'm a Christian because somehow through God's miracle of grace He helped me to see what a wretched miserable person I truly am, and that I was in dire need of Christ's saving grace. I am 100% nothing without the love of God living in my heart. I need to rely on Him constantly to guide me through every aspect of my life. I absolutely love the Lord, and I love His incredible words of truth and wisdom. I am thankful when God chastises me, and I can't wait to spend eternity with Him, but for now I am enjoying the mission God gave me here on earth. It has been a joy 'meeting' many of you here on this site, and in many ways you are like my mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers in Christ...hope we keep the same mission for God's truths to prevail.
---Anne on 11/20/08

I believe it is because of where I was born. If you study world religions you will see that they are geographically and culturally separated, with the exception of extensive mission work areas.

Before WE were called Christians, WE were called "The follower's of THE WAY",
obviously because of our Lord always saying
that He was/IS "THE WAY", truth & life, ect.

Follower's were doer's of the word,
NOT just hearer's of the word.
That's what set's us apart from other's,
Because other can see our Love for one another(LOL) and our Lord, which would make them want to be a part of, Remember that part of HIS words to us?

What a shame "We"/The Church has fallen so far and don't even know it!

The Lord promise's that The Bride shall make herself ready, Soon...

Praise God and Glory & Honor be unto Him & his Son....

If I don't know why I am a Christian (I'm NOT a Christian)

I am a Christian because: John 3:16 says For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that WHO-SO-EVER (thats me, Chara)believe in Him (Jesus) should NOT perish but have~Everlasting Life.

Vs.18 If (Chara) believe on Him,(Chara)is not condemned, but if (Chara) believeth NOT, (Chara) is condemned already because (Chara)has not Believed, in the Name of the ONLY Begotten Son of God.
If (Chara) Believe in God's Son,(Chara)is to obey,God's Son."Why call me Lord and do not the things I say?Luke 6:46
So I am a Christian because I BELIEVE and Obey God's Son,Repenting of my Rebellion against Him.Turning away FROM sin,to Christ

I've heard people tell me that your life don't start until you get to a certain age. Well my life started when I first became born again 10 years ago. Because I just starting living. I have always had a purpose to live, but striving to make it to heaven gives me a greater purpose of living. I love serving the Lord, how can one not? As good as he is to me. Keep his hands upon me while going in and out of surgeries for the past 3 years. I don't know why anyone fights God so much. I don't care too much for religions cause I don't have religion. I don't need a sign above my church door to tell me what I am. I know who I am, and I am a born again, God fearing Child of God.

Christ is my Maker and my God, pure unadulterated love in the flesh: and my heart went out to Innocent Christ and embraced his life and all that he is. Christ is the one and only absolute Salvation for mankind, manifestedly changing the soul and proven to be truth and worthy of all worship and acceptation: all else, every single religion in the world is manifestedly proven to be false and idolatrous and antiChrist, and will not and cannot save any one. Jesus says and proves, "I am The way, The truth, and The life: no human comes to the Father, except by me. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers. I am from above, I am not of this world. If you all believe not that I AM, you all will die in your sins."

I first accepted the offer of eternal life because let's face it, Christianity has the best retirement plan. However it has been my growing relationship with Jesus Christ that has kept me a Christian for twenty five years. He simply doesn't give up on you no matter how much you try to give up on him. My educated mind still has a hard time grasping this level of love. I am still a Christian because Jesus loves me no matter what.

there is no other book that satisfy the longings of the heart can make you question and search yourself to do whats Good and right towards others but mainly towards God, show a complete love for your family wife and even your neighbor and give you a reason for living, provide one way to live in harmony with your creator and fellow man, give you wisdom, joy ,peace,understanding of suffering, sacrifice, gives you hope where there was no hope, replace sadness with happiness, gives you someone to trust, learn obedience and,patients like the Holy Bible.

Thats the reason why!

Sharon, your post is a blessing. People say that predestination means God creates people for destruction. Not at all. Yesterday I had three complementary tickets for a concert. It was only a humble affair costing very little, with no big famous names performing. I was dying to give these tickets away, but I could not figure out how to get rid of them, even considered dropping them on the ground and letting people either pick them up, or trample them down. I asked a few people if they wanted them. Predictably they said no. People have other things to do, they have pride and don't want to accept a free ticket, they think it will be a rubbishy concert. I enjoyed the concert.

After being baptized a long while back, I had the nerve to leave my Father's house and try other things, including witchcraft, and He chased me through it all until I was caught. He chose me, of all people, how can I not love Him?
---Sharon on 7/19/08

Well, by Christian I mean simply Jesus is the way and God uses the Bible with me better than *any* group has told me. Simply be in His love and see how He rules me with His own peace, at each moment > "And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body, and be thankful." (Colossians 3:15) I have not found this with any non-Christian whatever . . . not that I have spent long checking (o:

God can let me know what He knows He wants, I trust Him about this. Of course, I mess up and ploop out, but He gets me back or I wouldn't be a Christian. He decides, more than I do, and better (o:

Dustin: Christianity is not a religion, but a relationship. I am a child of a loving Father who sent His Son to die for my sins to allow me to have an eternal love relationship with Him because of His sacrifice for me. That is what my Christianity is about.
---Trish9863 on 7/19/08

Myriads of people have willingly died as martyrs for being members of all sorts of nonchristian groups: Jews, Communists, Jehovah's Witnesses...whatever. Martyrdom does not prove one's credibility. It rather only shows one's sincerity.
---old_guy on 7/19/08

Ya know what it occured to me this morning that after I was saved it was the first time I ever stood in a church singing praise to God and it didn't feel like a lie.

There's a reason why:

Because when I sang before the words were nothing I could relate to the experience of my soul. It was hollow to me as one who still wouldn't trust and believe.

There's a freedom you recieve as a Christian, and you realize the slavery you lived under when you had a doubt about your end in this world.
Not fearing for the loss of your last mortal breath but now seeing it as a release let's you take up the life and way of Jesus with mercy joy and peace from above just for you and no one can touch it.

---Pharisee on 7/19/08

Although I do not refer to myself as "a Christian" I can tell you why I believe as I do. I am not ashamed of the testimony of our LORD, Who has saved 'us' - mankind -, and has called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace. Having abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for I know in whom I have believed, and I am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have entrusted and committed unto Him for His purpose and intent before and through that day of His judgement. I give Him all praise for bringing me to know Him as the one true God and Father of our Lord Jesus, The Christ.

Lets start with why I am a Christian? I didn't want to go to hell, So God saved me from it. When God calls you, He makes a believer out of you. I know that I couldn't do now, what I do without God's power and His strength. Within myself I am the most weak, pitiful, thing on this earth. I tell you the truth.>>>"You must depend on God and His strength, because you have none of your own".
---catherine on 7/18/08

I believe the witnesses of and about jesus.why?because after living a long life I know human nature.all twelve apostles,including stephen died for their testimony about jesus.the story of a resurrected man is so outrageous too the world,but these 13 men chose to die for that belief. do you know anyone who would die for this type of lie?
---tom2 on 7/18/08

For many are called, but few are chosen
Matthew 22:14, KJV

God calls us and we do the choosing. We can accept the free gift of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ or be like the foolish atheist and reject it. But we are given a choice. Our God is an awesome God.

Dustin, Christianity is NOT a religion. Christianity is a faith. Christianity is the one based on Judaism and these faiths know the real God the Father. Religions are man-made. I got out of religion and started to obey God and receive his blessings. I am doing it because I believe very firmly in an after life. I believe this life is just the Valley of Decision. If you don't decide, you are cast aside. We must decide for 'goodness' and for 'God', eventually leading to Jesus. When (believing and atheistic) people met Jesus, either in the Bible or going through a death experience after an accident or illness, the ones who could see spiritually what was the truth, said the same thing 'Lord, what should I do now?'

I am a Christian in order not to be hassled by my relatives about religion.
---old_guy on 7/18/08

I don't know why I'm a Christian. I certainly don't deserve to be, but God through His awesome grace chose me before I was in my mother's womb. God is good, and I'm thankful. Glory to Him through Jesus christ my Lord.
---John on 7/18/08

Friend there was a time that I thought anbody who believed in any God was a fool. No group recieved my disdain more than the Christians did.

I was a mocker of the very thing I'd die today saying is truth. I am hard headed about a great many things, and religion was never an exception.

What I have now is more than a bull headed opinion, I have real evidence in the form of a Spirit living inside me, a spirit sent by God himself so that we would know him and believe in the name of Jesus Christ.

Friend what if what I tell you is really truth and you reject it? What then?

I chose God because he chose me to be one of many of his spiritual daughters & he loves me for being me. I chose to accept his son & Gods teachings because God is love & offers nothing but the best. His word is true & doesn't come back void. For example he told me that I would be at church when I'd be in full labour, & I always had a feeling that he'd be born on July 6th,a sunday, but God had other plans. this past 4th of july we were at our church 4th of July party & we onyl stayed 2 of the 4 hours. I was almost 39 weeks along, got to the hospital at 8:45pm & had Samuel the next morning at 12:51Am. God told me & I didn't payattenion to all details, but it is also small daily things is why I countinue to follow him.
---candice on 7/17/08

It was neither flesh nor blood that revealed it to me, But the spirit of God and his love for me.
Think not that it was you that chose Him,
on the contrary, He chose us 1st.

Only the Spirit can cause a man to claim the Name of Yahshua(Jesus).

I Claim the Name, therefore I AM!

Christianity offers the TRUTH, not a bunch of lies (packaged as truth). Christianity also offers a RELATIONSHIP with God, NOT religion - other religions offer just that (only religion).
---Leslie on 7/17/08

We love because God first loved us and reached out to us first. Once I experienced God's love towards me personally, I responded to that call of Love and Loved Him back. Jesus said, "if you love me, you'll obey me." I wanted to know God in a very intimate way and do what He wanted me to do on this earth - learn His will for my life and share His love with people. I have a heart for Brokenhearted people and are drawn to them since I was healed of three of them. Aren't you glad you Believe? and Receive His Love? Isn't He awesome?
